The Shore Leave fan convention is getting ready to kick off it’s thirty-fifth year next week in Hunt Valley, Maryland (a suburb of Baltimore). The convention runs from August 2 to 4, 2013.
Started by a group of Star Trek fans in 1978, Shore Leave is a long running, fan-run convention with over three decades of history. The convention has expanded to cover a multitude of shows and fan groups, offering a diversity of guests from television and movies to authors and “real science” personalities.
Featured guests this year include William Shatner (Saturday Only), Amanda Tapping (Stargate SG-1, Sanctuary, Supernatural), Brent Spiner (Star Trek: The Next Generation), Saul Rubinek (Warehouse 13, plus SG-1‘s “Heroes”), Eddie McClintock (Warehouse 13), Neil Graystone (Eureka), Julie Caitlin Brown (Babylon 5), and more.
Among the authors attending this year are Ann C. Crispin, Peter David, Michael Jan Friedman, Keith R.A. DeCandido, Jo Graham, Melissa Scott, Howard Weinstein, and others. In addition there are several “real science” guests.
The event includes fan panels, gaming, writing workshops, autograph and photo ops, and more.
Saturday and full weekend passes are already sold out, but fans can still purchase memberships for Friday and Sunday.
